Solo Jeweler on roads less traveled

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My name is Catherine and unfortunately, I no longer travel with Sitka, my Swiss shepherd. He is now 13 and can not handle the trips. I will miss his companionship. I can't bare to take his pic down from my profile.
The hubby decided this on the road travel isn't for him; however, he might accompany me on a short weekend trip. I am retired teacher living in Cape Coral, Florida. I have worked with high school students in all areas of social justice and now more than ever I need to find safe places to be. Boondockers Welcome has been a wonderful resource while out on the road. Sitka and I use to head out for months at a time to escape the heat of SoFlo. I took my first solo trip the fall of 2016 to escape the oppressive heat and headed into the Blue Ridge Mountains. I drove the Eastern Seaboard and Outer Banks back to SoFlo. It was 32 days of wonder and bliss. 2017 took us to Wyoming and 2018 we were back in the eastern mountains. This summer my 10 year old grand daughter will hit the road with me.

I look forward to meeting wonderful new folks and finding community all along the road.

Not traveling with me.

Favorite Boondocking Locations

I love travelling period! Ok, that's an exclamation mark.... I almost never travel interstate and the rural highways and bi-ways are my heartbeat. I had a travel trailer before the class B and spent 3 months in New Mexico traveling Route 66 back to Duluth, MN. We have recently transplanted ourselves to Southern Florida.

ZiOs mobile's Hometown

Living now in Cape Coral, Florida on the gulf side. So far we are fortunate enough to be able to park our "van" in our driveway. But unfortunately, we can't offer space as hosts. We do have a fabulous guest room and if passing through you may be able park in the field across from us and stay in our home.

Once again we had a wonderful evening with Catherine and her wonderful dog Sitka on their way home. We look forward to having them back at any time.

Very Friendly guest

ZiOs stayed with us one night. I enjoyed visiting with her. Unfortunately she was coming down with a very bad cold and was feeling pretty lousy. We would welcome her return anytime.

Welcome back any time.

We really enjoyed having this boondocker last March. I just realized now that I should leave recommendations for guests, we're still fairly new at this. It was a wonderful evening. She and Sitka are welcome back at any time.

Beautiful family, wonderful guests.

We had some very nice conversation for a few minutes just before their departure the next morning. Linda and I had a full calendar as usual but we always try to make time to get to know our guests even if it just for a few moments. Wonderful guests. We hope to see you again one day soon; perhaps when we start boondocking in our own RV. Safe travels!
